A first senior goal for Huddersfield Town’s Matty Daly was enough to secure all three points for his side at the Valley against Charlton Athletic.
Victory for the Terriers moves them four points clear of the relegation zone, while Charlton were beaten for the fourth successive game, and are now without a win in their last nine games.
Speaking about the defeat, Charlton boss Lee Bowyer felt as if the officials had cost his side the game. As quoted by BBC Sport, the Addicks boss said: “I don’t want to say the officials have cost us, but they have. They flagged for Naby Sarr being offside and he wasn’t.”
“It is harsh. The lads gave everything and they crawled off the pitch. I wish I could help them more and freshen things up better but we are limited at the moment and that is the reality of it.”
“We are trying to grind out results and when you get the officials costing you it makes it even harder to take – and then they go and nick a goal in injury time. I am very disappointed.”
Huddersfield Town boss Danny Cowley was understandably thrilled with his side’s performance.
“It’s been a difficult period for us. Everything that could go wrong has gone wrong for us,” he said.
“What this win does show is that if we fight hard and show that level of determination, we can always find a way. We can leave this evening very proud. For us to find three points tonight, that was an amazing effort; to come away from home and find a way to win is incredible.”
